    I had a debate with a friend over the meaning of 'Chump'. We agreed to disagree after a 20 minute debate. I contend that a Chump is a guy that will take advantage of a situation while remaining coy about the whole thing.

    i think a "chump" is someone easily taken advantage of.

    Example: "Any OB doc who practices in John Edwards' home state is a chump."

    NO ...........Thats what I call a great negotiator.Or a great businesman!!

    A Chump is a bit more personal I think.Like a friend who would steal from me or try hit on my girl.

    Just my opinion.

    Chump = fool (Small mind)
    to echo that sentiment,
    Chump Change = Small amount of money

    I usually say "Chumpley."

    Interesting fact of the day...the word 'chump' is a word (and maybe the only one) that you can write on paper and then rotate 180 degrees to get it to spell out the same word. This is the best I can do with MS Paint (original/rotated), but I think you get the idea...

    The only difference between "champ" and "chump" is "U"(you)!
